|More About Our Family
Some of our favorite things to do as a family are going to the multiple parks and splash pads in our town, pool, zoo, water parks, sporting events, and having family movie nights. Whether it's running around the house while listening and dancing to music, being goofy by rolling around on the floor and tickling one another or even having family tea parties, we love and treasure it all! Luke's collegiate head coaching job is very flexible and allows him to set his own hours, which gives us the opportunity to take advantage of doing some of our favorite things together as a family whenever we would like to! His job also allows us to enjoy extra time together throughout the summer where we enjoy taking family vacations and traveling to spend time with our extended family.
Having a personal relationship with Jesus Christ and accepting Him as our Lord and Savior is most important in our individual lives and is truly the framework of our family. Though we are not perfect, we greatly desire and seek to live a life to glorify God and share His love and grace to others and our family through our actions. It's also important for us to spend quiet time with God individually and be a part of a couple's Bible study group. Being a part of our church community and serving others is very important to us. We are actively involved in serving in the children's department and love sharing Christ's love with the children. Our church family plays a significant part in our lives. They are very supportive and excited for us to adopt again.
|Our Musical Interest|
Music is a big part of who we are and is incorporated throughout our daily lives. Even though we enjoy listening to a variety of music genres including rock, contemporary, and country music, we love contemporary Christian music. Creating an uplifting and encouraging atmosphere is very important to us, and one way we do this in our home is by listening to music. We believe one-way children and adults can develop mentally, cognitively, emotionally, and spiritually is through music, and we love to incorporate this into our everyday lives. We also cannot forget how the girls in our family love to belt out and sing to have fun too!
It is very important to us, and we desire greatly, to raise children in a home atmosphere. We feel very blessed to be given that opportunity as Christy will continue to be a stay-at-home mother. She currently watches another family's child, but plans to take a break from caring for other children until your child is at least one year old or older.
Our four-year-old daughter Isabella loves playing with her stuffed animals, baby dolls, and dress up clothes. She also loves reading books and having books read to her, playing outside, singing and dancing, cooking with Mommy, and playing with her lovable and super friendly cat. She loves to help around the house with anything and everything. She is very excited and cannot wait to become a big sister!
|We live in the state of...|
Our neighborhood is perfect for growing families, as it has many young families who enjoy playing with one another and being outside. We have sidewalks and walking paths all around, and our city greenbelt connects to our neighborhood. We enjoy going for walks, runs, and biking along the greenbelt. We also conveniently have shopping and grocery stores, various restaurants, parks, our doctor's office, and hospital all less than 5 miles away from us. We also enjoy going to our neighborhood park/field to play on the playground or play soccer or baseball together, which is located right down the road from our house.
